Unlike last year, Microsoft won't have a press conference at Gamescom 2016 though there will be plenty of games to play (Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Halo Wars 2, ReCore, Sea of Thieves, We Happy Few, Everspace, Cuphead) and even an Xbox Fanfest. That said, Head of Xbox Division Phil Spencer confirmed that there will be "things to say this Fall"; he even teased a PlayStation Experience-like event, adding that he wants to visit fans that he didn't have a chance to visit before.

He mentioned European events that Microsoft used to organize in the past, like X09, so that's a possibility. Another possibility is for Microsoft to organize a press conference at Paris Games Week, just like Sony probably will; this would allow them to tackle the competition directly.

Spencer also said that work on the Phantom Dust remaster, due in 2017 on Windows PC and Xbox One, is progressing well.

Finally, the Halo TV series is still alive.
